Horrendous!!!! Holiday from hell!!!!
Bed bugs. Infested room!!!! Bed linen changed daily for a reason and that was due to the bed bugs smeared on bed sheets. Room was changed eventually to find a soiled nappy behind bed cabinet. Hotel Manager not very sympathetic. Husband took reaction to bites and ended up on steroids and antibiotics. Tui rep out of depth. Visited 2018. Still waiting on Tui responding to complaint.......
Spent a week here mid September wish we'd booked for 2. We had a studio for 2 it was basic but clean. Towels changed every other day, bed changed 3 times, room cleaned every day. All staff friendly, helpful and approachable. Prices reasonable. Pool and area lovely and clean. Lovely food. It's no more than a 10min stroll to the main strip and beach. There's a couple of restaurants on the way (Koukounari Taverna being the first one you come to, does the most amazing Greek food) and the Iris Bar has everything, live acts, all the sports and the most amazing lethal cocktails!
Alykes is small but has enough for everyone, has some amazing restaurants and a couple of great bars and has a wonderful beach.
The owner gives you the keys and room number and that's it you find your own way to the room. Room is okay bed linen changed every few days also towels by. Our fridge didn't work we told the owner she wasn't interested so my partner defrosted it and cleaned it and then it worked fine. Telly didn't work but we didn't mind as we had our tablets. I bought some washing up liquid which then disappeared from our room, mentioned it to the owner she said she would ask the cleaners in the morning. Of course she didn't and guess, what I seen it next day in the cleaners bucket. So I took it back and locked it up along with all our property as I thought if anything else goes missing there is no redress. Room vacation is 10am I thought that was very early. Couldn't use the pool as topless sunbathing wasn't allowed and the music was very loud the thump thump sort so you couldn't read. Reception needs a good tidy up. Alykes is lovely, nice restaurants and bars. Iris bar is good for a quiz.
Basic room, no frills, a bit tired to be honest, however, it was very clean and cleaned daily. Average Greek standard. We had a ground floor room which was fine, but we wondered if a higher up room would have more of a view and a breeze? Tried to manage without air con but relented on third night. Pretty essential for a good sleep! Only €6pn. Run by a nice friendly family. The walk to town is easy, just 10 min, and an excellent taverna just along the road.
Alykes is a pleasant little place with a few bars, tavernas, shops etc and a nice beach. Very relaxed escape.
This is our second trip to Avra and we love it , yes it’s very basic , the rooms are small and the kitchen can just about be classed as self catering with 2 ring hob, kettle & fridge ! The shower has no curtain and this room didn’t even have a shower hook , we had to hold it ! But it’s very clean , the family who run it are very friendly and pleasant, the pool is big with plenty of sun loungers and parasols and the location is great , just a few mins away from the bars and restaurants .
The food is nice , average prices eg €2.50 for chips , beer is around €3 , wine €2. inflatables are allowed in the pool. Air con is €6 per night. All in all another fab holiday, we can’t wait to go back x
